Place2Be launched the first ever Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. Now in its seventh year, they hope to encourage more people than ever to get involved and spread the word! The theme for this year is #ExpressYourself, and St Albert’s can’t wait to get involved!
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.
It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.
Throughout this week, class teachers will be having lots of discussions on their live zoom sessions around the topic of mental health and well-being. Teachers will also be sharing daily activities on their learning platforms (Seesaw/Tapestry) and on the school’s Twitter page . Get ready for the national Inside Out Day as part of our #WellnessWednesday programme, where we will be encouraging our young people to wear an item of clothing inside out to stop and think about how no one knows how others are feeling on the inside!
